Color Feature: CANARY

After watching all of the glitz and glamour of the Golden Globes, I have not been able to stop thinking about some of the absolutely stunning yellow dresses we saw on the red carpet.  Yellow is such a vibrant, warm, and inviting hue that always seems to brighten up any face… or space!  

Between all of the snow and crazy weather we’ve been having, it just seemed like the perfect time to look through some of my favorite canary yellow products, and share them with you all to help breathe a little bit of spring into your home!

 

While a vibrant yellow may be overpowering, I love it for an accent wall like this one!  Pops of canary in pillows and flowers tie the whole look together in such a gorgeous way.

A dish like this is almost too pretty to be covered up with anything on it!  The perfect happy addition to any table.

One of my favorite things about Le Creuset cookware and KitchenAid mixers are all of the fun colors they come in.  Especially these ones!

Around your house, pops of yellow can be just what your space needs.  Perhaps a vase, candle holder, or fruit basket?

And bringing that sunny hue into your bedroom makes it just the perfect color to wake up to, don’t you think?

Nothing says “happy” quite like a gorgeous, vibrant yellow in your home!  We’ve chosen Benjamin Moore’s hue, Weston Flax HC 5, to inspire our color feature this week because we LOVE yellows, and realize that it can sometimes be a difficult color to weave into your living space.  So, say goodbye to the tired yellows you’ve seen before, and take a peek at our favorite YELLOW collection!

The Lyon Square Back Side Chair by Palecek is such a unique and lovely design.  I love the way they’ve paired different textures with such a gorgeous bold yellow color!  Try it with a grayed out wood table for a coastal look.  And of course, who wouldn’t LOVE sitting down to the table in that chair to a meal on these beautiful Turkish Tile plates?!

I love the way Cyan Design has used such a vibrant shade of yellow on a such a delicately sculpted bowl. This bowl will add the perfect pop of color on your dining table table.  Fill it with flowers, fruit, or use it as a serving bowl, or better yet, add nothing at all!  It’s beautiful on its own!

If ever there was a PERFECT room of yellow, this would be it!  The wallcovering here has just the right touch of yellow to truly bring out the boldness of the pillows and the simplicity of the solid white sofa.  If you have neutral, solid colored furniture, this wallcovering would be great for you!  And Echo by Kravet has a coordinating fabric to bring the look directly to your upholstered pieces and draperies.

I stumbled upon these coasters at West Elm and HAD to share them with you.  Although they are simple, they are such a fun and EASY way to bring a bit of yellow into your living room this year!  And to go from the classically simple to the gilded ornate,  just look at this stunning Firenzi stool at M-Geough.  Truly a one-of-a-kind piece, this stool is just the perfect accent piece to add drama to your living space.

Yes, we are in love with this style as you’ve seen from past blogs, but isn’t it just gorgeous in yellow!?  This duvet might be one of my favorites yet!  I not only LOVE its beautiful texture and design, but the soft pastel yellow is such a warm and cozy way to wake up to!

This pillow cover by our friends at Kouboo is a great choice for a throw pillow on your bed, sofa, or chair.  I love how the yellow accents instantly brighten the design!  And these Matine Toile Drapes will make your room seem sunny even when it’s raining!

 

 

How do YOU use yellow in your home or workspace?  Do you like the bolder hues, or more subtle pastels?
